Hemp soap at its finest

Soap making is a great hobby and can be very rewarding. Just when you thought that you’d done it all.

I just got done cutting my handmade soap into bars and now my house is filled with lavender.

Loaded with moisturizers, antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-aging, Vitamins A, C, k and minerals.

In this recipe I have chosen Olive oil, Coconut oil, Hemp oil, Shea butter, Mango butter, Cocoa butter, Palm kernel oil, Castro oil, Avocado oil, Bees wax, Tapioca starch, Borax and lavender

All essentials for your skin to maintain its elasticity, brightness and moistures.

Cold pressed soap curing time is 4 to 6 weeks. Yes, that’s right 4 to 6 weeks before you can enjoy the luxury of your homemade soap. Why because it contains lye and during the curing process the lye will dissipate from your soap leaving you a non caustic bar of soap.

I started making homemade soaps in 1999 and oh boy my first batch was so rememberable in a bad way. So, rememberable that I quit making soap for a year. My oils never emulsified why because I didn’t use a stick blender and I was hand stirring the mixture and didn’t stir it long enough. At that time I thought that this was something I was being wasteful.

Just think that back in the day soap making wasn’t so easy. First thing that our ancestors would have to do was to make sodium hydroxide (lye) by soaking wood ashes from a fire with water. Only imagine that soap making dates as far back as BC (Before Christ).

Handcrafted soap can also be very relaxing and soothing especially when using lavender essential oils. Suddenly your house fills up with smells of lavender fields and that’s the best.

Lots of ingredients to chose when making your own customized soap for an example olive oil, coconut oil avocado oil and hemp oil. All have healing properties, antioxidants, antibacterial and anti-aging qualities.

This is the book that I found to be most helpful when I first started ~The Soap Maker’s Companion when I first started.
